"Westmoreland Hails Negro G.I." New York Times, April 27, 1967, p. 10.

In a speech given before the South Carolina State General Assembly, General William Westmoreland stated,
"And I have to say this to the people of my native state and to the people of my country, that the performance of the Negro serviceman has been particularly inspirational to me. They have served with distinction. The Negro serviceman, like all servicemen, has been a credit to his country. He has been courageous on the battlefield, proficient, and a possessor of technical skills. And like his white buddy, he understand what it is all about. He has carried out his responsibilities with a sense of responsibility."
